This area is "a beautiful canyon" (Paul Ross) off of state highway 191 immediately southeast of Wilson arch. The area is very peaceful, pristine, full of slickrock and playful rock formations. Five Entrada sandstone towers can be found here. Mid height vehicles can make it back here. (ie- Forester = no problem)
Immediately south of the Wilson arch rest/view area is a turn off between mile markers 99 and 100. Turn east onto this gravel road. As some buildings come into view ahead, there will be a gate to your right. Again, turn east (right) through this gate, please close it, and continue on this road until it dead ends at a large parking lot. A "road" does continue but park here. To reach Tranquility Tower, the largest tower to the north, follow this road which will turn into a path.

Don't expect much gear on this pitch,. but it is rather easy.Pitch 2- begin up pins to an incipient seam. We nailed, and later constructively scarred two baby angles placement on this pitch. With the use of small offset micronuts this should go clean. Or with a big stick clip this could easily go clean. Exit onto sandy sl...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
